Well, I had an adventurous week. Last Saturday I received a notice in the mail that a warrant had been issued for my arrest for a felony, larceny from a retail establishment. That will open your eyes. Now I have as many faults as the next person, but stealing isn’t one of them. I knew exactly what had happened, and I knew I’d be cleared, but I still had to go through all the B.S.: get a lawyer, post a bond, turn myself in, get printed and have a mugshot taken, set up an arraignment, etc.
Add to that, I’ve finished coloring all the pages I had drawn in advance and have now started work on the next sequence. I have been looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. It’s going to be a long, fun one, but there’s tons of information to get across, and 10 characters involved, all of whom need to do characteristic things while delivering exposition in dramatically interesting ways. It’s especially important as it launches us into the final act for Book 5. This is why I try to stay two months ahead on the postings, so I can take the time to make the new pages as good as I possibly can.
I tried to watch The Last Lovecraft this last weekend. I approached it with great trepidation as I don’t care for horror comedy; I don’t even like the campiness of Re-animator. However, The Last Lovecraft was far, far worse than I ever expected, produced at a level of technical mediocrity while maintaining the humor of a high school student project. Big pass on this one if you value your sanity. Or at least your time.
Have a good weekend. Don’t forget to vote for LIM at Top Web Comics and join us on Facebook (we passed the 900 mark, as I asked some weeks ago; thanks to all for that. Now let’s shoot for 1,000!)
